Medigoo Inc. has received financial support from TEKES and ELY-Centre Uusimaa for the development activities.
The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across Europe. The nominees are evaluated on 20 main quantitative and qualitative criterion: they include disruptive impact, market footprint, proof of concept, financial performance, technology innovation, social value, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.
This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the actual track record and standing of a company, which allows Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.
Finalists for the 2015 edition of the Red Herring 100 Europe award are selected based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial health.

The Finalists are invited to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Europe Forum in Amsterdam, April 13-15, 2015. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony the evening of April 15 at the event.
